Retired professor of speech language pathology Diane Holland (center) basks in the affection of recent grads Kelly Snow of Konawa (left) and Texhoma resident Beatriz Rey (right). Holland retired from teaching and managing the John Morris Clinic Speech and Language Clinic after 22 years of service at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.
Diane Holland had a five-year plan.
After working as a speech pathologist for the Norman Public School system, she was intrigued by the possibility of teaching when a position at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma opened up but didn’t want to become too far removed from working with clients.
Twenty-two years later, Diane Holland is retiring from a career of educating speech pathologists who have gone on to treat thousands and from running the John Morris Speech and Language Clinic that has helped hundreds in Chickasha and the surrounding communities.
